I think so, too.  It appears the spare tire can be placed in side as the bottom is not fully enclosed.  An advertisement shows it unlatched and folded down to hold milk cans, groceries, packages or whatever fits.

Another item was the hand crank.  It was long enough to extend through the slats in the bumper.  There was a metal guide attached to the bumper to prevent any damage.
No pics of these.

Hi folks,

You may remember my post of an original 29U here in MN.  The new owner contacted me last week and I weaseled a visit yesterday.  Originality is very impressive.  I encouraged the owner to join this forum and he said I may post a few pictures in the mean time.

Regarding that "home made trunk" - couldn't have been more wrong!!  I let the 2x4 support cloud my brain.

This trunk is a KARI-KEEN made in Sioux City, IA.  Note how it was painted and striped to match the car.

I think I'll have a Sunday drive.


Hello Des,

Welcome to this site.  I'm sorry I can't help with your questions, but someone here will.  Good luck.

I too was concerned about rear wheel.  What if a very thin sheet of brass were placed on axle?  This would enlarge circumference across the width of the shim and prevent wheel from its full inward travel.  Of course there is that pesky drive shaft key/slot to deal with.  Trying a little brain-storming here.

Believe you have correct path on front axle by using a washer on the shaft and then mounting wheel.

Re: wheel cylinder size.  I recall trying to check that cylinder fit flush against the brake support plate.  As far as I could tell, it did, but you might check to make sure the hole in the plate is large enough.  As you know, it won't take much to get the needed clearance.

Brother, I do understand about locating those "extra" parts!  Good luck.

Short note.  I purchased new cylinders from Andy B many years ago to replace my pitted ones - exact same problem and had to return them.  Even though claimed to be for 1929, his cylinders' outside diameter were too large and rubbed on the drum.  The original cylinders were sleeved with stainless steel locally at almost the same cost as the new ones.  Also did the master cylinder.  You might want to look at this option also.

Yes, it works very well.  I have read ethanol dissolves cork.  Maybe I've been lucky, I haven't sealed the vac tank or fuel gauge cork.

Here is my floor with the bottom seat "pins" and the frame showing the holes they fit.

I don't see an adjustable front seat in the Master Parts List until the PA.  However, here is an Auxiliary seat listed which I don't what it is.  frank

Hi folks,
Interesting to hear of a "bed" accessory.  Could have used that a time or two!

My front bench seat is fixed and can't be adjusted.  Hayes body.

The float in my 29 is cork and I have never replaced it.  Make sure it is not sliding on its brass shaft.  Secured by brass "washers" soldered on the shaft.  Good luck.

Hi Chet,

Thanks for the offer, but I have the 19".  My car is # Y089WE and was evidently assembled shortly after change was made.

This through us for a loop too, when needed a rear wheel and rim in the beginning.
